Description

 

SMALL GROUPS FOR INTIMATE WILDLIFE ENCOUNTERS

 

This is  8 days tour limited to 18 people,  private safari in southern Tanzania (Selous Game Reserve & Ruaha National Park). Ruaha National Park is Tanzania’s second largest, covering 13,000 sq kms, and home to huge herds of elephant and buffalo.

The central spine of the park is the watershed between the Nzombe and Ruaha Rivers, with a dramatic escarpment, above which lie enormous stretches of Miombo Woodland. The dry climate means that certain species not found elsewhere in Tanzania, such as the greater Kudu, can be seen in Ruaha.

A small group is essential for optimal wildlife viewing. We generally have the smallest group sizes in the safari industry, though we take a maximum of approximately 18 on this trip, divided into several vehicles. Small groups mean we get closer to the herds, get better photos, and enjoy more personalized interaction with our Expedition Leader.

A WINDOW SEAT FOR EVERY TRAVELER

We guarantee a window seat for every guest. Whereas many safari operators use crowded mini-buses, and even luxury operators often utilize every seat, including middles, we know how important unimpeded views are when you’ve come all this way to see and photograph the migration. That’s why we split our group into separate vehicles, each guest with a guaranteed window seat.

Take advantage of the full range of activities in the Selous and Ruaha, each day offers a different experience. Activities range from game drives, walking safaris, boat trips, birding excursions, fishing and spa treatments. Explore the waterways of the Selous on a boat cruise in search of hippos and large Nile crocodiles. Sleep-out under the stars on a Selous sandbank

 

FLY BETWEEN KEY LOCATIONS, TO REDUCE LONG DRIVES & ENHANCE TIME ON SAFARI

Take advantage of three internal flights, allowing us to cover a vast territory without long, dusty overland drives—we maximize your time with wildlife instead!

Rather than subject you to long, dusty drives between camps, we have included three separate flights—this is a tremendous advantage when it comes to adding more time on safari with wildlife, and less time bouncing around in a vehicle on rough roads. Compare itineraries carefully: we doubt you’ll find such transportation advantages on most safaris!

CLIMATE

Eastern Africa, classically presented as a major dry climate anomaly region in the otherwise wet equatorial belt, is a transition zone between the monsoon domains of West Africa and the Indian Ocean. Its complex terrain, unequaled in the rest of Africa, results in a huge diversity of climatic conditions that steer a wide range of vegetation landscapes, biodiversity and human occupations.
